MGC3030

In Production

The MGC3030 is a 3D Gesture controller enabling Gesture based user interfaces as a single chip solution. The chip uses an electrical-field (E-field) for three-dimensional (3D) gesture recognition based on Microchip’s patented GestIC® technology. GestIC enables user command input with natural hand movements in free-space. Gestures are meaningful hand movements such as rotations to dim lights (Air wheel) or flicks to change to the next track.

The MGC3030 is a true single chip solution for gesture detection – on board (32bit SOC) runs the Colibri gesture suite, developed and provided by Microchip. Not a single line of code is needed to design in gestures into products – configuration is done by the AUREA SW suite. AUREA is provided for free from Microchip as well.

The MGC3030 offers the shortest development cycles for gestures. Design guides, Host reference code, I2C communication guide and also video
tutorials are provided by Microchip.

Besides 3D gestures the MGC3030 offers touch detection (Sensor Touch) and low power proximity (Wake up / Approach) are part of the offering.

The MGC3030 offers shortest Time To Market (TTM) for your project based on the GUI based design in SW Aurea - provided by Microchip. Please download for free.
